Thought for the day... FAT

Microsoft do cross platform?

Riddle me this: why does a company that has relatively closed approach to software and file format development have the only file system that I can get to work cross platform ... Windows, OS X, *BSD, Linux, hell even my Psion, my Phone and my Cameras all support FAT.

I finally have something that Microsoft developed that I am truely thankful for. Shame Windows doesn't support larger than 32Gb volumes.
